It seems to me that there are two seperate issue here.
1. You have information about another family that should not have been passed to you. My advice here is to destroy your copies of this information. You have no right to it. You have reported the data breach and you really have done all you need to do here. There was obviously personal information in the files you were sent, it's nonsense of the Local Authority to say otherwise.
2. You need more time to prepare your statement in the ongoing proceedings given that the LA have not disclosed the correct information to you. This is a reasonable request, in the circumstances. I suggest that you file a C2 application to ask for an extension of time to file your statement, you have a perfectly good reason to ask for this, and the judge will grant you this extension. If there are files missing that you should have that you don't, then also ask for a direction that the LA disclose everything they should have done to you within 48 hours of the judge making the order.
I hope that this answers your question?
